OK so we have added a VanJam info page, so people can see what it's all about without the need to use social media for info. We have also registered the vanjam domain, which will allow us to let people find out about the event without the need to go to the Vanditos page and hunt for the event. The domain is registered and should be active anytime soon!! vanjam.co.uk

Yep, you can register for the Vanditos club stand/camping at the Newark and Newbury events. The plan is to get 20 awesome 25+ year old yank vans in one place, show the public what the vanning scene is all about and have fun! Limited spaces, first come first served!!

Alteration required as disc centre hole not large enough for original hub to pass through. Instead of lathing the hubs I decided to mill the discs. Same result, at least I can go back to drums if required!

So, had to sit down and work out what brake line unions I need to complete the install. As the proportioning valve needs changing and the line lock addition more unions needed. Not sure why all the sizes are different, guess it makes sense to someone :)

Added some pictures. So what have I got planned for this little Dodge: First, disc upgrade. Ordered the Scarebird conversion and all the parts i need to complete the job (disc/brake proportioning valve, hoses, lines, adaptor plates, callipers, discs etc). Have also ordered a line lock, for the hill starts (and burnouts). https://scarebird.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=127 Second, add Dinitol undercoating, to protect against the elements. Will apply myself :) https://www.dinitroldirect.com/dinitrol-where-to-buy/ Third, paint! will probably paint myself, nothing special but need something which will protect the awsome metal underneath. The overall plan is to use the van as and when I like, so when it raining or mid winter I wanna be able to jump in and drive the van. As the upgrades progress I will update on the forum. The Scarebird kit is a great upgrade, but not a great deal of detailed info!

So, website and Facebook page's are now online, product/merchandise are in the design and build stage (T's, mugs, sticker etc). Its time to focus on Vanjam1, which we are planning to schedule for June next year. Based on the American Vans UK and Vanditos UK Facebook pages it's clear that this needs to happen. We have interest from all over the UK, so we would like to plan American Van meets in key locations around the UK. A tour would also be great! Vanjam1 is likely to be held in the Midlands. We have a venue in mind, a couple of stalls planned including an old school CB rig/setup stand and a DJ ready to participate. Have a look on the homepage or click the picture below for how to participate and be included in any venue updates as and when they happen. Registration will enable us to scale the event, so every click helps. #vanditos #vanjam1

My little rat van goes to the Dyno. Bit of a brake bind, so happy with 220bhp and 300 ft lb torque. Lots still to do. This video was taken a couple of years ago and still working on the bugger ;)
